I love the ability to search palettes on http://www.colourlovers.com/palettes. This is very useful if you already have a specific color (such as in a logo) and you need suggestions of coordinating colors.

For a corporate site you want to use a limited palate. Suits don't tend to like wild colors. Use toned down colors for most things (your primary site color can be a little punchier, but not super intense generally). Triadic or Split Complementary is probably best, though Analogous can work too.

Adobe's Kuler is a good way to hunt for colour schemes and experiment with different palettes.

Unfortunately, Kuler requires Flash. If you have Photoshop or Illustrator, you can use the Kuler panel.
